My dearly beloved Casio FX-850 has finally gone to calculator heaven (taking everything with it!) But I won't hold that against it.
If any paleocalcuologists remember this machine they might be able to guide me to an equivalent modern programmable calculator. Or am I showing my age? This machine used to do all my "hand" calcs and I deigned to use RISA etc only when closed formula lengths went past 8 lines of program ...

I will stalk the internet, the local Future Shops etc., even the message archives, but if you have any advice, I am a willing listener.
